Editorial Reviews

Features highlights from the first season of the Channel 4 show LIVE FROM ABBEY ROAD, which saw various musical artists perform live at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.

The show took the artists into the hallowed studios, and with the only audience being the TV cameras and technicians, they recorded a selection of songs later broadcast in the twelve hour-long episodes. Augmented with interviews, the shows cut through the normal visual effects and studio trickery to showcase the music itself.

The 2-disc DVD brings together some of the best performances from the whole series, along with some additional goodies.

Disc One features: John Mayer; Corinne Bailey Rae; Dr John; Craig David; Damien Rice; LeAnn Rimes; Josh Groban; Natasha Bedingfield ; Wynton Marsalis; Nerina Pallot; Jamiroquai; Ray LaMontagne; Gipsy Kings; and Norah Jones.

Disc Two features: David Gilmour; The Good, The Bad And The Queen; The Kooks; Gnarls Barkley; The Goo-Goo Dolls; Iron Maiden; Kasabian; Primal Scream; The Zutons; Dave Mathews; and Amos Lee.

Format: DVD
I've always been a music fanatic. For some reason I always seem to have music on no matter what. In the car, in the house, mp2 player, they're always up and running. I've collected music on vinyl, tape, disc and now online. And I've never limited myself to one form or another. Country, rock, r & b, jazz, soul, classic. I love them all.

An appreciation and love of music is not something you can force on someone. You either have it or you don't. You can be led to it, but to feel it rooted deep in your soul is another matter. Those roots can be covered over, buried deep by the problems of day to day life. If you can find a hook to dig deep and find those roots, you'd be amazed at the joyous feelings they can inspire.

I think that this was the basis for a new series showcased on DVD this week with the release of LIVE FROM ABBEY ROAD. The studio made famous by the Beatles back in the sixties (and which they used for an album title) is used to its full effect here.

As the box states "The concept for LIVE FROM ABBEY ROAD is simple...capture fantastic, live, musical performances and place musicians in the world's most inspiring and creative environment in which to do so". Yes, it may sound simple, but the concept works and the performances are stellar.

The idea that someone could come up with a tune, a melody, harmonization, instrumentals, vocals and more is amazing in itself. To find a group of talented individuals willing to perform live in this studio is to help cultivate an appreciation for all that they do.

No musical scene is left untouched here. Country? LeAnn Rimes. Jazz? Wynton Marsalis. Pop? John Mayer. Progressive rock? David Gilmour. Metal? Iron Maiden. Not just these but a whole slew of other bands and performers as well.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I purchased this and thought that I would get the full performance from each artist. I was definitely wrong. You get one performance and a short interview with each artist. The video and audio quality is awesome but if you are hoping to get all performances then you will be disappointed as well. Would love to find a full box set with all performances, or the possibility to download/buy a full performance by artist and create a collection. I would wait to see if either becomes available before buying this set.

Format: Blu-ray
These performances on this Bluray disc are the best of series one, which feature a very diverse group of artist performing songs that stretch across musical genres. You cannot go wrong listening to today best and brightest being recorded and filmed in one of music's most hallowed and revered venues. The artist performances are first rate, the video is excellent, images were clean, relatively sharp, free of noise, and very naturally presented. Colors were nicely rendered with a rich tonal balance, nicely saturated, and completely free of chroma noise or bleed.Naturally when you view concert video, its all about the sound and boy is it good. We are graced with two flavors of audio, a 5.1 Dts MA lossless mix, and a 5.1 Dolby TrueHD mix as well. From a musical standpoint this is purely a 4.0 mix, with the center channel utilized only for commentary between tracks, or just before a performance. If you get a chance, listen to the recording sans the video.
For those of you who are true music fans this disc is a must have.

Live from Abbey Road is a fantastic sampling of music from all genres of the musical world. This two disc DVD set features artists such as John Mayer, Josh Groban, Corrine Bailey Rae, Damien Rice, Dave Matthews, Jamiroquai, Iron Maiden, and many more.
This musical compilation gives you a brief close up interview with each artist, then gives you a taste of their musical style as you watch them play a live version of one of their songs. Live from Abbey Road is a terrific way for someone to find out about an artist or style that they've never experienced before. I got the DVD originally because there were one or two artists on it whom I liked. however, after watching the DVD in its entirety, I ended up thoroughly enjoying the music of many artists I had never heard of before. It is a great DVD for music enthusiasts who enjoy variety.

Format: DVD
Live from Abbey Road is a popular music TV show in the UK, showcasing artists perform live in the famous Abbey Road studios (at one point Johnny Rzeznik points to a microphone, and almost drools "This is the microphone that John Lennon sang into!"). This DVD collection brings the best of the program's first season.

"Live From Abbey Road: Best of Season One" (2 DVDs; 200 min.) brings a wealth of performances and interviews. DVD 1 (80 min.) is not all that interesting to me but for a couple of artists. Damien Rice brings a beautiful performance of "9 Crimes" along with Lisa Hannigan (I can only hope these two will get together again to make music). Dr. John remains a strong performer after all these years. Norah Jones and her band bring an okay "Thinkin' About You" but she really needs to widen her musical landscape and get away from the formulaic semi-jazzy songs. Lots of other artists on DVD 1 that I just don't care for (Craig David, LeAnn Rimes, Josh Groban, Natasha Bedingfield, among many others). I rate DVD 1 just 2 stars. DVD 2 is much more enjoyable for me, due to the line-up of the artists: The Kooks bring a great performance of "Naive", The Goo Goo Dolls are good on "Iris", Kasabian blaze through "Shoot The Runner", The Zutons bring their hit "Valerie", Dave Matthews brings "American Baby" solo on acoustic guitar, etc. The second DVD also brings 50+ min. of additional interviews (check out John Mayer's response to the interviewer asking him "who is John Mayer?") and other behind the scenes. I rate the second DVD a strong 4 stars.

The sound quality on here is nothing short of spectectular, in particular if you have the proper home theatre system set-up (which I happen to have). Play it loud!
